Our football match prediction:
Following a hard-fought win at Sunderland, Manchester City welcome Stoke City at their Etihad Stadium on Matchday 28. The Citizens aim to stay in the race for the Premier League title and they are regarded as hot favourites to win Wednesday’s football match against Stoke City. Sergio Aguero has found his goal-scoring touch of late and the Argentine striker is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. The Citizens face a must-win situation against the Potters and we predict that the star-studded team will extend their winning run in the national championship. Stoke City are a team with two faces. Mark Hughes’ charges are tough to beat at home, but their away record is anything but good and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to spoil Manchester City’s party at Etihad Stadium. When the two teams met at Bet365 Stadium earlier this season the Citizens emerged triumphant (4-1).
